Automotive Paint: What's Available for the Do-It-Yourself Car Owner
When you think of "automotive paint", is a large-scale professional auto body shop the first image that comes to mind? Perhaps you're picturing a well-lit spray booth, filled with thousands of dollars' worth of equipment, manned by trained employees with many years' experience behind them. Or maybe, when it comes to your own vehicle, you recall having purchased a small tube of touch-up paint, the kind with the brush built into the cap, which you used to repair a small rock chip on your hood. You've long since misplaced that tiny tube.
